Musical Interlude: Billy, Don't be a Hero (1974)

Bo Donaldson & the Heywoods had been together nearly a decade before they landed a huge hit with "Billy, Don't be a Hero" in 1974. The track alone sold more than 3 million copies, and got heavy airplay on radio.

However, after the follow-up single, "Who do You Think You Are?", the hits simply disappeared, and after a brief fling with country music, the band split, only to return as a nostalgia act.
